[mythtv] DVB-C problems - no longer working on Dutch digital cable

I've found that current SVN no longer works with DVB-C in the
Netherlands (@home, Casema, ... ). This most likely means it also fails
on the Telenet network. For NC/Noos in France i would have to take more
effort to check ;-)
It took me a while to detect, as i have been traveling a lot, and at
first was thinking i was having a HW problem or kernel problem, as a
month ago i was also updating the kernel.
So this easter weekend i ensured the kernel was no problem, did a signal
check on the cables, exchanged cards to double check on the HW and
finally build a specific MB/FE combination for testing with only DVB-C
to fully test. I've got my normal test system back on current SVN, and
the DVB-C card in that system does not see any tables....
The problem must have started about 1 1/12 month ago.
My DVB-C test system (newly commisioned for this role) is now running
current 0.20-fixes, on kernel 184.108.40.206 and handling DVB-C with CAM as
well as can be expected. (i expect some CAM instability, will likely
need to restart every so many hours to keep the CAM happy).
So 0.20-fixes works, SVN trunk of about 2 months ago works, and current
SVN does NOT work.
Next sunday i will have some time again, and intent to start with fresh
SVN of about 2 months ago and then slowly work my way up till i find
where it breaks.
I am open to suggestions as to:
- at which SVN version to start
- with which steps to search
- things to keep in mind while testing?
I suspect change 12619, but could not proof it. I changed my full test
system back to 12618 and still had trouble. BUT i do not fully trust
that test, partly as i was doing it with a latest DB.... This is why i
will start with DB from 0.20-fixes and SVN of about 2 months ago. That
way i will upgrade the DB slowly.
